I went to an airshow in Toledo back in the mid 80's before Gulf war I, and no one had seen the first stealth fighter yet. (F-117?) Anyhow, it had been heard of, but not seen yet.
So they had an area roped off with just tires and landing gear struts standing in the appropriate spots, with a nice sign identifying it. (Just like the rest of the stuff on static display.) On all the listings for the specs, it said "You wouldn't believe it anyhow".

Yep, the F-117. Made it's (most) public debut in the first Gulf War. They had one on display at Wright Patt last time I was there 2-3 years ago.
